SMART repair virus

Recommended Posts

Always glad to behelpful here. Just a few changes now, and remove what our work added there. Actually one of them will rehide those file settings. AntiVir has a good reputation, so should be just fine to reinstall.

The logs show you have slightly outdated versions of vulnerable programs, so Go to each of these sites and update to the latest version (keep your eyes open - they often slide in "opportunities" for things like Google, or McAfee's scanner):


(For Adobe Reader and Flash Player - uncheck the useless McAfee scan, if offered)


(For Java 7 Update 4 - trying to slip Ask adware/spyware to systems lately, so watch and uncheck it)

Once you have done that, be sure to go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any older, more vulnerable Java versions.


Go to Start – Settings – Control Panel. Click on Add/Remove Programs. If any of the following programs are listed there, click on the program to highlight it, and click on Remove. Then close the Control Panel.

McAfee SiteAdvisor

It's info is often terribly incorrect (see here for example, then click the View Community Reviews button to see how bad this adware vendor really is), so gives a false sense of security.


Go to Start > Run and type:


and OK. At the prompt type or copy/paste each of the following, pressing Enter after each:

cd "%userprofile%\desktop"

combofix /uninstall

ComboFix should uninstall itself at this time.


Eset, if you don't plan to use it again, uninstalls through Add/Remove Programs.


You can also at this time delete the files/folders of the tools we used. To assist with some of that run OTL again. This will help by automatically removing some of the tools we used.

Just click CleanUp, and select Yes. When it finishes removing some of the tools and files we used there just agree to the reboot.

In addition, I like to recommend reviewing the information at these locations, to make sure your system stays secure (links borrowed from Gringo):
